In honor of the 50th anniversary of Where The Wild Things Are on November 23, we're celebrating the iconic book and legendary author Maurice Sendak.
To celebrate Sendak and the classic book we'll seriously never get enough of, we count down his most heartwarming love quotes.
"A book is really like a lover. It arranges itself in your life in a way that is beautiful."
"I cry a lot because I miss people. They die and I can’t stop them. They leave me and I love them more."
"And Max, the king of all wild things, was lonely and wanted to be where someone loved him best of all."
"Oh, please don't go — I'll eat you up — I love you so!"
"It's no fun being lonely."
